that would be a good start but if you have a hard code for the regen system it may not even start.

any idea from the driver of the code???

Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. Let me know what fault codes he is getting and the engine make and model number. He should be able to scroll through and access the faults using the mode/reset buttons and if not a scan tool will be needed to access the codes. The codes will be needed to know what circuit is causing the problem or if it is regen related or another problem. He can try a parked regen to see if it will complete but if not it means other problems requiring it to be plugged in for further diagnosis. We would need the fault codes logged in the ECM memory. Let me know

Truck wont increase temp,therefore wont regen. The check
the check engine light came on, along with the MIL- both amber. Dash codes were 12, 13, 15, 16. Seemed odd that all codes were high and low voltages at once. Truck asked for a regen and the regen light blinking- performed parked regen- lasted about 10mins but never saw temperature increase. Regen light stayed blinking for a day. Took truck to a TA and they diagnosed injector 2 faulty fire and turbocharger sensor had low voltage. replaced sensor. Stop engine light came on and shut truck off. regen still wont perform due to low temp- attempted forced regen and it was aborted. … read more
